Fakhruddin Iraqi: O saki, fill a cup

Fakhruddin Iraqi: O saki, fill a cup

Photo: Ramallah woman in embroidered costume (1898-1914).



​O saki, fill a cup
with that wine:
my heart, my religion
my sweet life.
Can drinking be my liturgy?

Then my Faith
will be to sip the Beloved
from this chalice.

(Fakhruddin Iraqi)
